look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: Amber (creative huh?). Somewhat hazy. Smattering of messy off white head. Fits the bill for an amber.
smell: Pleasant nose with a nice balance of malt and a little biting hops. Nice sweet edge.
taste: Hops are more prominent here. Still a good bit of sweetness but the hops are right there and the finish has a little bitterness.
overall: Fine example of an amber, w/o either sweetness or maltiness or hoppy bitterness dominating.

Fascist Pig poured from a tall can into a small tulip.

Hazy dark amber with s fine light beige head and excellent lacing.

Aroma complex and semi-sweet.

Flavor. Nice balance and complexity wWith a touch of smoke. Sweet and darker roasted malts mix with a near equal hop component.

O flavorful yet not challenging beer.
